Biography of William C. Hoad

William Christian Hoad was born January 11, 1874 in Lecompton, Kansas. He completed his bachelors in science at Lane University, also in Lecompton, in 1896 before graduating from the University of Kansas with a civil engineering degree in 1898.

Hoad spent some time working for the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad, returning to KU in 1900 as an instructor. From 1906-1907 he was at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, researching sanitary engineering. In 1906 Hoad was promoted to associate professor at KU, and in 1911 he became a full professor. Also during this time he served as Engineer to the Kansas State Board of Health.

In 1913, Hoad left KU to become the chair of the newly-created Sanitary Engineering program at the University of Michigan-Ann Arbor, serving during World War I as a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army's Sanitary Corp. Hoad retired from UM-Ann Arbor in 1944.
